The Discard Pile is first created when a 1,6, or 9 is played.
Play starts in a clockwise direction.

Stacking Effects

Pick Up cards (2, +2, +4) stack and increase the number of cards the next player must pickup.

A few more things

  • Discarded cards are always discarded face up. A player may not discard their last card.
  • Only one card may be played per turn. Cards must have the same symbol or colour as the one below it. A +2 and a 2 are considered the same symbol.
  • +4 is a tricky card. The next player can play any 2, +2, +4 , 3, 4, 5, , or card of any colour to counter it. If the next player instead picks up, then the player who played the +4 chooses the colour.
  • If a player can't or doesn't want to play then they must draw cards until they get a card they can play. They may choose not to play it.
  • If there are no cards left in the Draw Pile then shuffle the Play Pile into the deck—leave the most recently played card in the Play Pile.
  • Players may leave or join at any time. Their hands are discarded and redrawn each time. Players may not abuse this rule.


The game is won when a player plays their last card into the Play Pile. The winning card cannot be a +4 or Wild. A player may not discard their last card.
